Format: Hardcover
A most unfortunate defence of the chemical-agro conglomerate. The post WWII boom of the "chemical age" is not without it's victims. In increasing numbers, people are becoming sensitized or allergic to common chemical additives such as formaldehyde, plastics, synthetic latex, gasoline additives, perfumes and hundreds more. The authors of this folly do their utmost to present the people affected by these allergies as nothing more than mental health cases. The fact that neither of these authors are researchers, and seem grossly out of step with contemporary medical knowledge is glaringly evident, even with the short duration of time passed since this publication. Anyone can look up information on "chemical allergy" on the Johns Hopkins Medical University website. A rather striking contrast to this unscientific effort from authors who either knowingly, or unknowingly put out the strongest defense for the continued use of "business as usual" in the chemical sectors. The "Truth About MCS and Environmental Illness" will not be found between the cover here. Try one of the other books, such as Miller and Ashford's "Chemical Exposures...Low Levels, High Stakes" for a better understanding of how to protect your health, and your familiy's health in the "chemical age"

As a professor, I would classify this book as unscientific, politically-motivated, and downright harmful to public welfare. I would recommend, instead, the book by Nicholas Ashford and Claudia Miller: "Chemical Exposures: Low Levels and High Stakes."

Mcs is a horrific illness. It leaves you isolated alone and terrified. I only hope the authors of this book get mcs, as an increasing amount of people are. Then they'd discover the 'truth' of it. This book is pure evil.

If you want to read chemical industry propaganda, this is the book for you. If you want to read the REAL Truth about Environmental Illness, I recommend "Chemical Exposures : Low Levels and High Stakes", by Miller and Ashford. The facts show that Gots and Barrett are nothing but chemical industry shills.

The authors do an excellent job of debunking the "Environmental Illness" myth that is being perpetuated by clinical ecologists. They show that these illnesses are not recognized by the scientific community at large. The authors do not have any ties to the chemical industry, they are merely speaking out for the people, and trying to get the message across that these "illnesses" should be looked at more carefully. They are trying to warn people of the fraud that is being foisted upon everyone by lawyers and physicians. READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!
